Thomas Kurian, incoming manager of Google Cloud and former product development president of Oracle, speaks at the Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco on September 24, 2013.
Google makes a new game in the cloud space with a new one acquisitions. The company today announced that it is planning to provide the sledge moving company Alooma, which helps other companies move data from multiple sources to one data store.
Therefore, we today announce our intention to purchase Alooma, a data transfer leader. Alooma helps companies streamline cloud database migration with an innovative data pipeline tool that enables them to move data from multiple sources to a single data store.
Here in the Google Cloud, we are committed to helping corporate customers easily and securely migrate their data to our platform. The addition of Alooma, subject to final terms, is a natural form that allows us to provide customers with a streamlined, automated Google Cloud migration experience, and to give them access to our entire array of database services, from managed open source database solutions to solutions such as Cloud Spanner and Cloud Bigtable. This simplified transfer path also opens the door for customers to take advantage of all the technologies we have to offer, including analysis, security, AI and machine learning.
One of the things we are most excited about with Alooma is the deep expertise of both corporate and open source databases that their team brings to Google Cloud, which will be crucial to helping us build multiple migration features in Google Cloud Platform. We are also looking forward to adding our growing Google Cloud footprint in Israel, which includes the Velostrata team we added last summer.
